Pros

Can't think of one. Maybe a good brand name.

Cons

Toxic company and working culture. Certain departments still follow the dictatorship culture. Top management does not work in the benefit of improving customer experience, but more towards their own ego and emotions. No work life balance for managers, you are expected to fulfil unfair expectations from management, no matter what day or time it is. Monetary compensation is laughable.

Advice to Management

Change the top management of certain departments.

Pros

- Potentially have the opportunity to move around other roles and teams, provided you have a good relationship with the direct manager (they are primary gatekeepers) - At par health benefits, decent pay (could be better) - Good brand, comes with resources - Great for early-career - you get the opportunity to do A LOT hence can gain more experience. - Research the team you are joining and the culture within the team as it will be your key to either success or failure

Cons

- Highly hierarchical, political, and red tape (company-wide) - Personal experience with bullying, passive-aggressive behavior from direct managers, very toxic, anxiety-inducing environment (particularly in my team) - No work, life balance, all support is lip service, good on the paper type of initiative - 360 evaluation doesn't exist. - The employee survey is not exactly confidential. We were sat down as a team to explain why we marked it low and asked to find the solution (yeah, ridiculous, this happens widely) - Only 2 kinds of people: overworked and underworked. If you are underworked and coasting, your boss likes you, and he is influential enough to cover you.

Advice to Management

when you hire experts from outside to be employed, give them the support to be successful and actually let them do the job you hired them to do, instead of insisting on your own way of doing/thinking else you are wasting investment. too many upper management micromanaging their VPs...then it rolls down to the ground level of the same ineffective culture.

Cons

Politics, poor management, slow increment, no work life balance

Advice to Management

Try to understand the ground staff difficulties, resolving the problem together instead of pushing all the responsibility to ground staff does not seem to be a good leader
